of united states senators are really in line with what president obama has been calling for, you know, really all the way through his first term. and i think president obama's advocacy and his focus on the need for comprehensive immigration reform during his campaign really created the space for and quite frankly the outcome of the election created this space for this bipartisan cooperation, but, you know, i want to give you a healthy but. there is, you know, the road is littered with gangs of senators, good intentions that were consumed by the legislative process, and, you know, what i'm hopeful about in the house is certainly that the majority of democrats in the house embrace comprehensive immigration reform and the principles that were put forward by the gang of eight, and i'm confident when president obama talks about it today it will be similar. but the question is will the speaker who is dealing with still his group of really extreme republicans who have already signalled not very good comments about the proposal, you know, will he eventually let the will of the house work, the
rubio, the republican senator of florida, himself an immigrant from cuba to the united states. he's out there selling this comprehensive immigration reform legislation to some skeptics, including on the rush limbaugh show today. listen to this. >> i think there's this false argument that's been advanced by the left that conservatism and republicans are anti-immigrant and anti-immigration and we are not. never have been. we are pro-legal immigration and we recognize that our legal immigration system needs to be reformed. we also recognize, because conservatism has always been about commonsense, that we have an existing problem that has to be belt with in the best way possible. >> how important is rubio's role in getting this comprehensive legislation reform passed? >> i don't think you can overstate it, wolf. it's very, very important. here's someone with undeniable conservative credentials, a bona fide member of the tea party who is effectively trying to save, i would argue, save the republican party from itself on the question of immigration. is he somebody that can go on the rush limb

in the united states senate. a similar group happening -- the conversation happening on the house side as well this a bipartisan basis. in a moment, we'll hear from folks who don't agree with the president's proposal. first, let's get reaction from our team of political experts and reporters, gloria borger with us, jessica yellin and miguel marquez at a key location in georgia. i want to start with you, jesse, because of something the president said. he said he was laying out key markers. he said if congress doesn't move a bill, if it bogs down, he will send a specific proposal of his own. that's something reform advocates wanted in first term. why does the president think the second term politics are better? >> reporter: because of the president's showing amo ining ao voters. he won more than 70% of the latino vote. republicans did not show well among them. and so the shift means that there is a coalition now among democrats and republicans, he believes, to move republicans across the finish line to get something done now on immigration reform. what is meaningful, i think, about the statement
. so, why should the united states or what should the united states do about illegal immigration? he we asked florida senator marco rubio. >> let me ask you a mixed question, one is on illegal immigration and the other is the future of the republican party because there's a huge population out there, hispanic population and that's been a big issue. >> well, two separate issues. illegal immigration is bad for america. legal immigration is good for america and the fact of the matter is that we have 11 million people in this country, more or less, that are undocumented. i don't know anyone who is happy about that. and, but we have to deal with what we have. i mean, the truth is that the reality of is that these 11 million people the vast majority are going to be here for the rest of their lives. our obligation as policy makers is deal with them in a way that's compassionate and humane and also responsibility in a way that's not unfair to anybody who has done it the right way and in a way that makes sure that we never have to do this again. what i really he don't want to see is ten years fr
because he wasn't here in the united states congress but i also say to you that although congressman smith is my friend, he is wrong. for the last decade, we have not promoted amnesty. i introduced legislation that talked about legalization and it had to do with paying fines, paying a duty in terms of either service in the military or charitable service. it said get in line and behind all those who had been in line so there were penalties and that's the focus of immigration reform for a decade. but as the president said, we have had nothing but debate and sound bites and no action. now i believe we have an opportunity for action. >> all right. and you believe and despite some members of the house who are republicans who, for example, congressman smith says, he doesn't believe that any proposal will make it through the senate. when you hear those kinds of comments, how do you maintain optimism? >> i guess we'll hear from the president this afternoon and he will probably reinforce access to legalization, access of secure borders and hiring the do undocumented. the way i plan to do it is wave
